I think it's one thing to kick people out etc or act unethical but it's another to game the system via loopholes. If you brought that issue to CJ I bet I know the result. Squat. Isn't that one of the issues? You complain but was anything done on their end to protect you or other publishers? Or did you not report it to them?
I concur with BILL in the fact that I've only seen this type of garbage coming from CJ. I've discovered some holes there lately that make me want to warn my fellow publishers. Like anything it's buyer beware at the end of the day. It's publisher beware in this instance.
If you consider the possible scale of what's happening with some advertisers? Well not all publishers rake in the money. You get enough people putting up links that aren't resulting in paying out a commission but result in sales? That's called nirvana! It's an advertisers nirvana. Yes yes yes no honest and ethical advertiser would ever do such a thing. Just all honest mistakes!
The real issue is that if I bring these issues forward to CJ and they pat me on the head and send me on my way without any further reviews. Any opportunity for an advertiser to not pay a commission for traffic that a publisher sends should be plugged. It's such a farce there I would suggest a vast majority have no idea. Yes I could walk away but it's not that simple. I'm fine knowing all these things but it doesn't stop me from caring about these loopholes which are screwing publishers.
